Hobbies

...all work & no play...

Time With Family

This could be watching the same movie for the umpteenth time, kicking the soccer ball around, playing with toys, or being an on-demand jungle gym. When Madison gets older, Jeremiah is looking forward to the thought of family vacations.

Time With Wife

They had 7 years of just them. For the past 5 years, they have strived to ensure that they still make time for themselves. Even if it is just sitting on the back porch talking. She is Jeremiah's best friend and his biggest supporter.

Podcasts

At a point in time, Jeremiah was a co-host of an entertainment podcast. During that time, he listened to a lot of different industry specific podcasts. These days it is more educational, such as Entreleadership and Faith By Hearing with a dozen more queued up.

Music

Above and beyond listening to music often, his first instrument was the recorder. Does that count? 6th-8th grade, Jeremiah played the trombone. 9th-12th grade, he played the bass guitar. In college, his first degree was in Commercial Music. He learned the piano, created electronic music, recorded, and edited music. Jeremiah is wanting to pick the bass after he is done with his MBA.

Reading

Ever since Teresa got Jeremiah a Kindle for Christmas, he has read a lot more. Easier to hold and he can make the font bigger! Beyond the non-fiction books, he reads video game adaptations, Star Trek, Star Wars, and Tom Clancy. Without Remorse by Tom Clancy is in progress currently.

Writing

Jeremiah likes to help and mentor others through knowledge sharing. In his blog, the 2016 and beyond focus is around Project Management, Leadership, Career, Personal Growth, and the like. Past topics were about reflective learning, management, life, and book, craft beer, & video game reviews. He started writing at the end of 2010 after an NSLS Seminar on digital identity.

Website Design

Jeremiah has lots of fun creating websites. He has this personal one, a previous personal SquareSpace, several free WordPress sites, and one he designed for the podcast. He was first introduced to website design his senior year of high school. He learned straight HTML, Microsoft Frontpage, Dreamweaver, and Flash. He even found his final senior project!!

Photo Manipulation

This is a more recent one Jeremiah picked up. Mainly to do things for the podcast videos and iwebsite. He utilizes freeware to do this, Inkscape and Gimp. He is very much the amateur, but finds it fun learning and creating or reimagining things.

Audio/Video Editing

This was going to be Jeremiah's career originally. It ended up turning into an expensive hobby that he still enjoys to this day. He does miss being able to record an entire band's LP, mix it, and creating their CD. He got to get back into it for a few years thanks to the podcast.

Craft Beer

Jeremiah likes sampling different craft beers. There are so many choices above and beyond the "big 3". Some might even call him a beer snob, and that is ok. He doesn't mind being called out for not compromising on his standards. His favorite breweries are Lakewood, Community, and Clown Shoes.

TV & Movies

This is typically done with Teresa. Due to the amount of content and the lack if time, Jeremiah sticks with Sci-fi and Comic Book with the occasional RomCom movie. Until he is done with his MBA, this is on hold. There is a lot of upcoming binge watching...maybe. 

Video Games

Jeremiah didn't have a console until he was 18 after spending his own money, so he is playing catch up. When he plays, it is on the PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, or PlayStation 3. There are plenty of single player games he plays, but he likes playing multiplayer games with his friends online. It's fun times and a good opportunity to catch up.

If you are looking for someone to take your organization to the next level as a full-time employee, set up a time to talk to Jeremiah.
